This guy will be a great player. I really don't like being too optimistic with prospects, but this guy looks pretty tremendous.

Yeah they converted to the wing last year I think more for a less defensive role right now. But yeah it's a fun line to see, especially since they're all going to be with the big club soon. It would be great to have them all on a line when they get their shot. Lot's of complimentary skill there.

One thing Joe has to learn is, staying aware at the blueline for D looking for a big hit. Last year he was knocked out for a few games by Stellick on a late hit because he relaxed after passing the puck and last night he was lucky he was ok from a similar hit. Hope he has learned that lesson if he wants a long concussed free career.

He's smart, he's positions well, could be too slow to play a 3rd line role imo, but maybe switching him to wing and playing him to crash the net could be much more useful.

If he continues to work on his skating I can't see him not being a 1st line center for us in the near future.

Article on Colborne, which makes a case for him as a top six C by next year.

http://leafshero.wordpress.com/2013/...op-six-centre/

Quote:
When looking at Colborne scoring pace now, itís obvious the wrist issues were what caused the sudden disappearance of Colborne, but also his sudden re-emergence Due to the small sample size of a healthy Colborne itís hard to judge exactly the type of player Colborne is. If when healthy, he truely is a point per game AHL centre, who is still learning to use his size and only a couple months over 23 years of age, then their is a lot of reason for Leaf fans to have optimism about Colbornes future in Toronto. Over the past season many high end AHL prospects have made the jump to the NHL, and in general the jump seems to be made when a prospect has been able to put up a point per game in the minorís. When comparing Colborne to other young forwards (all born in í89 or later) who made the jump from the AHL to the NHL this season, Colborne does not look out of place.

His potential is still sky high imo.

He's finally 100% healthy, and has been amazing in the AHL the last 30ish games playing at a PPG pace. His skating has improved, but he can still work on it.

The kid has been lights out on fire the past month with the Marlies. Last thing from a bust. He's a big center who's a late bloomer. Lots of upside.

I have no problem going with the slow burn style of development with Colborne. Plenty of time to develop him right, even if it isn't next year.

Playing through that wrist injury was the worst thing Colborne and the coaching staff could've done.

Seriously hampered his development. It's nice to see him getting his mojo back, but I can't help but feel this year of limbo could've been avoided by placing him on IR.

If Colborne continues to play well and makes Toronto next season and Kadri keeps up his great play next season then Toronto could have 1 of the better 1-2 young centre punches in the league for the next few years.

I've caught a couple Marlies games live in the last couple weeks, and Colborne still looks to have many of the skills needed to be a successful NHLer, likely not a star-level player though.

Agreed, but no reason he cant be a 50-60 point big center.
